Clement Pulled From Tacoma

Dave · July 28, 2009 at 9:24 pm · Filed Under Mariners 

In the third inning of tonight’s game in Reno, Brad Nelson pinch-hit for Jeff Clement, who had started the game at DH. Ryan Divish reports “a fairly reliable source says its not injury related”, which would naturally lead to trade speculation. We’ll find out soon enough.

    In the clouds: Right now my head is filled with a 4 team trade that has Lopez, Branyan, Clement, Morrow and Washburn on their way out for big stuff……that would be so awesome to get something big for them!

    Back to earth: Probably a good trade where we end up with great pieces for next year

    Churchill says he’s hearing Morrow and Clement for Kaazmir.

    Churchill was hijacked-hes not hearing that, someone signed up with a similiar name, all he knows is that Clement has been dealt and it could be a 3 team deal.

    In Jack we trust of course, but that’s too much for just Kazmir. It’s gotta be him and somebody else for Morrow and Clement. Those two scare me. They could very well end up going somewhere else and doing good/great things we never could get them to do.

    Branyan had a slight injury, needed some rest. Shelton certainly hasn’t looked bad either.

    That’s not soon enough.

  10. Pine Tar on July 29th, 2009 12:56 am

    The label under the picture says “Seattle Mariners”. It means absolutely nothing.

  12. Pine Tar on July 29th, 2009 12:57 am

    Sorry. Right side of the page list him as a Mariner.

    Churchill has locked up registration and gotten rid of the phony, so no more false alarms tonight.

    I hope Kazmir and Brignac are aseattle bound

    Thank you, greymstreet. I’m glad someone was paying attention.

  19. sweeper on July 29th, 2009 1:51 am

    just read this entire thread and a thread on draysbay, seems like most of us are in the same line of thinking with kazmir and brignac. can’t wait to hear what actually went down

    I’m excited to see what Jack Z is going to do with trading chips like clement and morrow. Look what he turned Putz into! I’m just happy that now when I hear that one of our top prospects is pulled from a game, I actually get excited about what we are going to do with him rather than brace myself for the imminent fleecing that I have grown accustom too in recent years…..

    Sorry, I just assume everyone reads the entire thread first.

    That’s okay, I laughed 🙂

    I’m curious what Dave’s thoughts are on these rumors.

    Is it too early to predict playoffs next year?

  23. built2crash on July 29th, 2009 5:30 am

    I’m hearing Ricky Weeks is one of the players being linked to the M’s.

    The Mariners removed former first-round pick Jeff Clement from a Class AAA Tacoma game on Tuesday and later informed him that he is about to be traded, one major-league source told

    According to Larry Stone, the big name involving Clement in the multi-player trade is Kazmir (From ESPN Rumor Central).
